About the Whole Planet Foundation:

Through March 31, Whole Foods Market will be collecting donations for the Whole Planet Foundation, a program founded to alleviate poverty in developing-world communities where Whole Foods Market sources product. The Foundation provides grants to microfinance institutions that provide loans to impoverished entrepreneurs. These loans, generally $200 or less, are granted to primarily women to allow them to create or expand a small business to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.  In spite of not requiring any collateral or a contract, these microcredit loans have an astounding 97% repayment rate.
